As far I can see the motherboards and chips are the same so I guess the jumps settings are the only differences?

The amount of heat produced by the two chips running at 1.67 WILL NOT be the same. Depending on your luck, you can get anywhere from 0 seconds to several minutes worth of use out of PowerBook. If you set a more optimistic target, such as 1.25GHz, I believe it may be worth pursuing... however, attempting anything higher would most likely lead to negative consequences.

Are you out of your mind? Don't you think that if the G4 in the 1GHz 17" could handle clock speeds anywhere near 1.67GHz, Apple would have released the machine at that speed?

I'd say overclocking a laptop is a pretty stupid idea. The easiest way to do it would be sell your current one and buy a newer model.

This is probably the start of another of his trolling diatribes.

if you not capable contribute anything to the thread......

The components are the same so the question is what jump settings changed and what extra cooling was implemented to get this 1.67ghz?

The jumpers are located behind the LCD. Simply take an axe, and with a strong swinging motion, hit your laptop square in the screen. This exposes the super secret apple developer button that overclocks your processor to 6 ghz, increases your ram to 2 terabytes, and fills your harddrive with really high quality porn.

Wouldn't get too sarcastic. Your theory here proves that you don't know enough about processors to even be considering overclocking.

And on that note...
